1. Comic-Con 2010
A geek's life would be a barren wasteland without a hefty dose of comic books. Yes, attending Comic-Con may require leaving behind the lifesized replicas of Batman and Superman featured so prominently in your swinging bachelor pad, but the reward is clear: four days in sunny San Diego complete with a masquerade, hours of gaming, art exhibitions, film screenings and hobnobbing with luminaries in the comic book field. Attendance reportedly tops 100,000 comic fans each year, making it a potential pick-up spot for geeky singles. Come channel your inner Comic Book Guy, the Simpsons' character who once asked a fair damsel: "How do you feel about 45-year-old virgins who still live with their parents?"
